Thread: Considering between Cannon 550D vs Panasonic G10

  1. #1

    Default Considering between Cannon 550D vs Panasonic G10

    550D APS-C vs 4/3 'Live' Mos sensor.
    Definitely APS-C will win in ISO since the sensor is larger?

    Features wise, I prefer Panasonic for it's preview option, like Shutter preview etc.

    Basically, which is more important down the road, hardware or software?

    The 550D is very highly spec'ed. It main advantage is the APS-C sensor that will give better high ISO noise reduction.
    The G10 will have an interesting interface, centered around the LiveView screen, but that would also mean that you shoot wrt to that screen rather than in a more traditional thru viewfinder method.

    MHO, 550D for the potentially better image quality. Can't care too much about more things to 'interface'. But that is my preference and that differs from person to person.

    The most important down the road is Peopleware.

    if you're looking solely in terms of features, i think the decision is clear, 550D.

    but if you think the Micro 4/3 system suits u, then G10 lor
